E-commerce was 10.4% of retail sales in 2017. Today, e-commerce makes up over 16% of all retail sales, showing a dramatic 50% increase.

Moderated by Tim Wang, City of Toronto Community Lead at Shopify, we will discuss what is achievable via e-commerce, how physical retailers can adapt to online-first business, and the best strategies on how to operate a successful e-commerce store. Key Topics: How to create and implement an effective digital marketing strategy for your consumer brand. Challenges with operating in e-commerce and how to navigate them successfully. The future of e-commerce and what to expect in the coming years.
